2010-01-21 HAARP signal på 3.39 MHz med 350 MW - Mega Watt
Amerikanskt experiment med HAARP utlöste jordbävningen? USA's HAARP experiment med ELF, HF eller mikrovåg utlöste jordbävningen på Haiti. Det påstås i varje fall av bla CNN. Se video från Youtube " Haiti Earth Quake H.A.R.P. 2010". Här är förklaring till HAARP-HF. - Ta det med en nypa salt, men påståendena är intressanta. Man kan söka på HAARP och TESLA och hitta massor om tekniken på Google. Ryssarna hade visst också ett omfattande HAARP försök med HF inära Kiev Ukraina för några decennier sedan för att skapa ett konstgjort högtryck.

Även Venezuelas Hugo Chavez anklagar USA för att ligga bakom jordbävningen på Haiti, och det gör även forskare. Klicka och begrunda.
ERICSSON Response sänder GSM container och personal till Haiti.
Idag landar Ericsson Response på Haiti med en "Mini-GSM" container, som kommer att ge FN's personal kommunikation. Ericsson Response är en humanitär hjälpenhet som startade redan 2000 på initiativ av Lars Stålberg, informationschef på Ericsson. Ericsson Response blev officiellt erkänd som en resurs för FN genom ett avtal med FN's dåvarande generalsekreterare Kofi Anan. Ericsson Response har sedan starten ställt upp med transportabla GSM-nät i världens stora katastrofområden, bla i Afganistan. I Afganistan länkade man Mini-GSM utrustningen via VSAT till Telia's närt i Sverige. GSM nätet i Kabul var alltså en del av det svenska nätet i Sverige. - Med Mini-GSM kan hjälparbetare med vanlig GSM-telefon nå varandra och resten av världen. På Ericsson Response arbetar flera radioamatörer, bla SM5VZS Stig Lindström, som koordinerar tekniken och logistiken.

2010-01-20 Kiwi helps with Haiti communication lines
With many communication lines cut off in Haiti one form is making a strong comeback with the help of some New Zealanders.Amateur radio operators in New Zealand have joined a global network to help those in earthquake ravaged Haiti.
Daniel Ayers is using his skills to help communications in and out of Haiti as he is part of an international network of two million amateur radio operators. With mobile and landline phone towers destroyed old fashioned radios work when nothing else does.
"Amateur radio doesn't rely on that infrastructure it just transmits radio waves through the air so that means it's not vulnerable to being knocked out by disasters," says Ayers. In Haiti "hams", as they are called, have been key to getting information out.
"Radio operators are working by pulling car batteries out of cars, running a couple of hundred feet of wire up a tree and those signals, they're weak, but they're making it out," says Ayers. It does not matter if they are right next door or thousands of kilometres away.
From Auckland Ayers was able to reassure the sisters of a convent in Trinidad and Tobago that their fellow sisters in Port au Prince were safe. He says the ham network could prove vital if a disaster strikes New Zealand as our potential lifeline to the outside world.
2010-01-19 Haitisk rundradio tillbaka i luften igen.
Minst 12 radio stationer i Port-au-Prince området och en nationell station är igång igen i Haiti enligt Internews. - Organisationen Internews kommer dessutom att flyga en 300-watts station från Paris. Den stationen kommer att ha en räckvidd på 50 km runt Port-au-Prince.
Det framgår inte av meddelandet från Internews om det är fråga om VHF eller MF stationer som är igång och som är på väg. En flygande FM-sändare i ett lastflygplan från USAFsänder 4 timmar varje dag över Haiti. Man sänder bla meddelanden med avsikt att avråda från flykt till USA. Planet är en fyrmotorig Hercules med AM, HF, VHF och TV rundradiosändare. Användes bla i "Desert Storm". Kallas projekt "SOLO". Några aktuella HF frekvenser för USAF mfl runt Haiti finns på denna länk, "frekvenser". Se även USAF.

Port au Prince (Haiti) repeater:146.880 -600 tone 100
Jimaní (Dominican Republic) repeater:147.970 tone 100 simplex.They will work Thursday morning on this repeater including changing the antenna to improve coverage. Both repeaters are working well and usable even with handheld.
Rafael ask the amateur radio operators going to Haiti to take note of the frequencies.
2) Radio Club Dominicano amateurs are still in Jumaní, when many wounded are arriving. They are helping Haitians to contact their relatives and friends outside of Haiti but they can´t help the world to find specific individuals in Haiti. They are receiving many emails with such request but security and road conditions make impossible to look for specific individuals in Haiti at the present.
3) Radio Club Dominicano is updating their Facebook account (in Spanish) regularly.
We are updating news on Haiti received from our Member Societies on our Twitter account http://www.twitter.com/iaru_r2 and on our webpage www.iaru-r2.org that now has section for Emergency Communications.

RESCUE RADIO: HAM RADIO FIRST RESPONDERS ACTIVATE FOLLOWING HAITI QUAKE
A powerful earthquake has struck off the coast of Haiti. The tremor hit on Tuesday, January 12th at 2153 UTC. According to the US Geological Survey the epicenter was about 10 miles south-west of Port-au-Prince and hit a magnitude 7.3 on the Richter Scale. The first tremor was followed by two aftershocks with magnitudes of 5.9 and 5.0.
Soon after the first jolt amateur radio first responders were activated in Cuba to listen for any distress calls from is Caribbean neighbor. Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF, is in the newsroom with more.
HH2JR: " I am able to communicate for the first time. I hope you are copying me OK. The situation is chaotic and I am only alive thanks to god. Over."
That’s just part of a conversation captured by Newsline listener Brian Crow, K3VR, on Wednesday, January 13th as hams in quake ravaged Haiti began returning to the airwaves. Jean-Robert Gaillard, HH2JR, was one of the first and with Fred Moore, W3ZU, running the patch he described what Haiti was like when he finally was able to get a chance to view the devastation first hand:
HH2JR: "Yesterday was really bad but I managed today to go and visualize -- myself and a couple of friends. We took some pictures and its really chaotic. I've never been through a war but its what a war (signal fade). Dead bodies all over the place and dead bodies (signal fade) to be buried."
HH2JR also described the aftershocks:
HH2JR: "I'm OK and my house is OK and that’s all I can tell you. (signal fade) We have had thirty aftershocks, Repeat three zero aftershocks since the big one yesterday at ten (minutes) to five in the afternoon. Over to you."
That contact was among the first of the personal ham radio on scene accounts of living through a killer quake but not the first ham radio response to this disaster. Soon after the quake hit, CQ Magazine editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, put out an e-mail alert that quoted IARU Region 2 Area C Emergency Coordinator, Arnie Coro, CO2KK. Corro said that he was already coordinating a multi-national response by hams with organized nets on 7.045 and 3.720 MHz. The net control stations were identified as CO8WM and CO8RP located in the city of Santiago de Cuba. According to Corro these nets were in direct contact with the National Seismology Center of Cuba located in that city. CO2KK asked hams world-wide to monitor the two net frequencies, but to also keep them clear of non-essential traffic. International Radio Emergency Support Coalition is also active on EchoLink node 278173.
On Wednesday the ARRL put out a notice saying that amateur radio operators should also be aware that emergency traffic pertaining to the Haitian earthquake is expected on the Salvation Army SATERN net frequencies. According to SATERN's leader, Major Pat McPherson, those frequencies are 14.265, 7.265 and 3.977 MHz. The Salvation Army is accepting health and welfare traffic requests on its Web site.
As to the health and welfare of hams living in Haiti. Part of that was covered in the January 13 edition of The Daily DX newsletter. It reported that the Reverend John Henault, HH6JH, made contact late Wednesday morning with the Intercontinental Assistance and Traffic Net on 14.300 MHz. This is the IARU Global Center of Activity frequency for emergency communications. HH6JH said that he was safe, but had no power and no phone service. Also that he was operating on battery power and hoping to get a generator running later in the day. The newsletter also noted that Pierre Petry, HH2/HB9AMO who was in Cap Haitien about 140 km north of Port-au-Prince is okay. Petry is in Haiti working for the United Nations World Food Program.
Daily DX also reports that members of two ham radio groups from the neighboring Dominican Republic, the Radio Club Dominicano (RCD) and Union Dominicana de Radio Aficionados (UDRA) are preparing to go to Port au Prince. Once there the team will be installing an emergency radio communications station operating as HI8RCD/HH and a mobile station. The team of Dominican Republic Amateur Radio operators includes HI8PGG, HI8FLB, HI8CJG, HI8DBF, HI8SAR, HI8JLH, HI8ROD and HI3TEJ.
The situation in Haiti is still chaotic and literally changing from moment to moment. The most important thing is to keep 3.720, 7.045, 7.265, 14.265 and 14.300 clear for emergency and priority traffic and quake relief nets on these frequencies. We will post updates in text form on our Newsline Facebook web update page as they become available. To access it just go to facebook.com and friend Amateur Radio Newsline.
And for the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF, in Los Angeles. Don
Haiti's ambassador to the United States is Raymond Joseph. He called the quake a major catastrophe, telling the various news services that he is calling on friends of Haiti to come to the country's aid.

The following update has been received from North America about the Haiti Earthquake. Note the increased use of 20m as conditions have changed. - 73,Greg, G0DUB IARU Region 1 Emergency Communications Co-Ordinator
"From the CQ / WorldRadio Online Newsroom:
Some ham radio activity from Haiti is beginning to be heard,following yesterday's devastating earthquake.Father John Henault, HH6JH, in Port-au-Prince, made contact late Wednesday morning with the
Intercontinental Assistance and Traffic Net (IATN)on 14.300 MHz, the IARU Global Centre of Activity frequency for emergency communications. Based on relays monitored at W2VU, Father John reported that he and those with him were safe, but had no power and no phone service. He was operating on battery power and hoping to get a generator running later in the day. He asked the station copying him, William Sturridge, KI4MMZ, in Flagler Beach,Florida, to telephone relatives with information that he was OK.
able to provide requested assistance:14300 (IATN), 14265 (SATERN); 7045 (IARU Region II) and 3720 (IARU Region II) kHz. Additional frequencies may be activated on different bands at different times of day, so be sure to listen carefully before transmitting to make sure you are not interfering with emergency traffic."
The following frequencies are in use for earthquake-related traffic and should be kept clear unless you are
2010-01-13 "Haiti Earthquake - please keep frequencies clear."
Radio amateurs are requested to keep 7.045MHz and 3.720MHz clear for any emergency traffic resulting from the Earthquake which struck Haiti on 12th January 2010 in case any Haitian hams manage to get on the air, and in case of other related events in surrounding areas, including aftershocks.
Arnie Coro, CO2KK, IARU-R2 Area C Emergency Coordinator calls reported at 0245 UTC that they haven't been able to communicate with any radio amateur in Haiti but if there is presence from amateurs from other countries in the area that also felt the tremor. We ask for your support to keep this frequencies clear.
The following is from an e-mail from CO2KK posted to the CQ/WorldRadio Online Newsroom:
"A few minutes after the earthquake was felt in eastern Cuba's cities, the Cuban Federation of Radio Amateurs Emergency Net was activated, with net control stations CO8WM and CO8RP located in the city of Santiago de Cuba, and in permanent contact with the National Seismology Center of Cuba located in that city.
Stations in the city of Baracoa, in Guantanamo province, were also activated immediately as the earth movements were felt even stronger there, due to its proximity to Haiti. CO8AZ and CO8AW went on the air immediately , with CM8WAL following. At the early phase of the emergency, the population of the city of Baracoa was evacuated far away from the coast, as there was a primary alert of a possible tsunami event or of a heavy wave trains sequence impacting the coast line at the city's sea wall ...
Baracoa could not contact Santiago de Cuba stations on 4
0 meters due to long skip after 5 PM local time, so several stations in western Cuba and one in the US State of Florida provided relays. CO2KK, as IARU Region II Area C Emergency Coordinator, helped to organize the nets , on 7045 kHz and also on 3720 kHz, while local nets in Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa operated on 2 meters.
As late as 9,45 PM local time 0245 UTC we have not been able to contact any amateur or emergency services stations in Haiti.
Amateurs from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela were monitoring the 40 meter band frequency, that I notified to the IARU Region II executive Ramon Santoyo XE1KK as in use for the emergency, requesting that 7045 kHz be kept as clear as possible ...
We are still keeping watch on 7045 kHz hoping that someone in Haiti may have access to a transceiver and at least a car battery to run it.
All information that has so far come from the Cuban seismologists tell us of a very intense earthquake, and also of the possibility of other events following.
Following the advice of the geophysicists, we are keeping the 7045 and 3720 kiloHertz frequencies active until further notice."

2010-01-13 IARU Region 2 Requests Frequencies Be Kept Clear After Massive Earthquake Strikes Haiti
On Tuesday, January 12 at 4:53 PM Haiti time (2153 UTC), a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hit 10 miles (15 kilometers) west of Port-au-Prince, the island nation's capital. Communications in and out of Haiti have been disrupted. No word has been received as of yet from any of Haitian Amateur Radio operators. The ARRL encourages US amateurs to be aware of the emergency operations on the following frequencies: 7.045 and 3.720 MHz (IARU Region 2 nets), 14.265, 7.265 and 3.977 MHz (SATERN nets), and 14.300 MHz (Intercontinental Assistance and Traffic Net); the International Radio Emergency Support Coalition (IRESC) is also active on EchoLink node 278173.
IARU Region 2 Area C Emergency Coordinator, Arnie Coro, CO2KK, is coordinating a multi-national response by hams. There are organized nets on 7.045 and 3.720 MHz; amateurs are asked to monitor the frequencies, but to also keep them clear of non-essential traffic. Amateur Radio operators should also be aware that emergency traffic pertaining to the Haitian earthquake is expected on the SATERN frequencies of 14.265 MHz, 7.265 MHz and 3977 MHz, according to SATERN's leader, Major Pat McPherson. The Salvation Army is accepting health and welfare traffic requests on its Web site.
"As late as 9:45 PM local time (0245 UTC), we have not been able to contact any amateur or emergency services stations in Haiti," Coro said in an e-mail. "Amateurs from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Venezuela are monitoring the 40 meter band frequency. We are still keeping watch on 7.045 MHz, hoping that someone in Haiti may have access to a transceiver and at least a car battery to run it," but so far, no HH stations have checked in. Tuesday's quake was felt in the Dominican Republic, which shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, and in Eastern Cuba, but no major damage was reported in either place.
The January 13 edition of The Daily DX reported that the Rev John Henault, HH6JH, made contact late Wednesday morning with the Intercontinental Assistance and Traffic Net (IATN) on 14.300 MHz; this is the IARU Global Center of Activity frequency for emergency communications. He said that he was safe, but had no power and no phone service. He was operating on battery power and hoping to get a generator running later in the day. The edition also noted that Pierre Petry, HH2/HB9AMO -- who was in Cap Haitien (about 140 km north of Port-au-Prince) is "okay"; Petry is in Haiti working for the United Nations World Food Program. Later today, he will be traveling to the capital.
The UN's 9000 peacekeepers in Haiti -- many of whom are from Brazil -- were distracted from aid efforts by their own tragedy: Many spent the night hunting for survivors in the ruins of their headquarters. "It would appear that everyone who was in the building, including my friend Hedi Annabi, the United Nations' Secretary General's special envoy, and everyone with him and around him, are dead," French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Wednesday, speaking on French radio. UN peacekeeping chief Alain Le Roy would not confirm that Annabi was dead, but said he was among more than 100 people missing in the rubble of its headquarters. He said only about 10 people had been pulled out, many of them badly injured. Fewer than five bodies had been pulled from the rubble, he said. The United Nations said the capital's main airport was "fully operational" and that relief flights would begin on Wednesday, January 13.
The situation in Haiti is still chaotic. More information will be posted as soon as possible. Information is being validated and shared between many amateur groups and news sources as it unfolds.
